From: Agamemnon Profitloss, Chief Finance Officer
To: Billy DePodesta

Des Moines Magpies Finance Department
FINANCIAL PROJECTIONS REPORT


Following the trade with the Olympia Wolfhounds which saw the departure of two of our highest earning players, Jeffrey White and Robinson Ortíz, you requested an updated assessment of the team’s financial position over the next two seasons, 2052 and 2053.

The budget is in an extremely healthy position for the upcoming 2052 season. Tadamichi Hamada, our main acquisition in the Wolfhounds trade, will be on the SCL salary minimum for the next two years. That means that our player payroll expenditure for 2052 as things stand is down to $85m. This gives you a $15m headroom beneath our $100m expenditure limit for the year, yet we have a full roster in place with no clear gaps that require fresh acquisitions to fill. I understand you are keen to add a free agent starting pitcher on a one-year contract to add depth.

It is almost becoming a catchphrase of mine now, but as always, the position the year after next (2053) looks very challenging. Of the current roster, pitchers Israel Padilla, Walt Davidson and Bernardo Merrado will be eligible for arbitration for the first time that year, and my department’s latest estimates are that our payroll will soar to $106m. There is actually upside pressure on that number, as Cory Adams and Eric Warner are extremely likely to be super-2 qualifiers for arbitration in 2053 if they remain on the active roster for the whole of the coming season. Factoring into account those players, we project that we will overspend by approximately $20m unless action is taken to cut salary expenditure next winter. Agreeing contract extensions with Padilla, Davidson and Merrado below the level of their estimate would, of course, reduce the budgetary pressure.

That assessment for 2053 does assume, of course, that our player payroll limit will again be $100m, but this has yet to be confirmed by the owner.

I trust that this note provides the information you were seeking.

Chief Finance Officer

Magpies and Davidson shake hands on 3-year contract extension

By Maggie Pye | 29 Nov | 2,206 comments

The salary arbitration process can be a complex, difficult and combative affair. Magpies setup relief pitcher Walt Davidson will now never experience it, after coming to terms on a 3-year contract extension which runs from 2053 to 2055. Worth $3.5m per year for its duration, the agreement ties up Davidson’s future for the time being. He will be eligible for free agency when the contract expires.

Davidson was one of the few dependable members of a distinctly undependable Magpies bullpen last year. Over 44 relief appearances, he earned a 3-2 record with a 3.59 ERA. He has an impressive career WHIP of 0.93. Magpies fans were said to be delighted at the news regarding the popular right-hander.

Padilla signs 5-year contract with Magpies

Posted by Marie Tranquilitatis | Nov 27 | 11:33AM

Fans of the Des Moines Magpies were celebrating this morning as the club announced the news that #2 starting pitcher Israel Padilla has signed a long-term contract extension worth $13m per year over 5 years. Padilla, 23, has become a key member of the Magpies’ rotation, and has a career record of 27-18 with a 2.94 ERA. The all-star was due to become eligible for arbitration for the first time at the end of next season, but the new deal, which runs until the end of the 2057 season, buys out his arbitration years and first two years of free agency.

GM Billy DePodesta told reporters: “We are delighted to secure Israel’s long-term commitment to this organisation. He will play a major role in our efforts to win a championship over the coming years.”

Free agent outfielder Jaramillo inks 1-year agreement with Magpies

By Maggie Pye | 9 Dec | 485 comments

António Jaramillo, the former Bismarck Coyotes starting pitcher, has come to terms with the Magpies on a 1-year contract worth a reported $5m. The club has not formally confirmed the deal, but sources tell MagpiesNation that the agreement has been signed and the necessary paperwork submitted to the SCL Commissioner’s office for ratification.

27-year-old Jaramillo was an all-star in 2048 and 2049 but struggled in 2050. He came back stronger last year, but started only 13 games before suffering shoulder inflammation and missing the rest of the season. Over his career Jaramillo has pitched to a 3.87 ERA and has a 63-69 record. He will compete in spring training with Robert Terry for the #5 starter job, but sources familiar with the Magpies front office’s thinking say he is likely to begin the new season on the minor league roster. After his bullpen’s erratic performances last year, GM Billy DePodesta was eager to secure an experienced veteran backup pitcher should his young relief talents endure another frustrating season. The cash-strapped Magpies apparently had some budget headroom for the coming year and have used some of it to secure Jaramillo’s services.

The Magpies are also reported to be in discussions with the agent of veteran outfielder Ramón Rodríguez in an effort to lock down greater outfield depth also.

GM’s notebook

- I’m pleased to get António Jaramillo. It is unusual to get a 2-time all-star pitcher without draft pick compensation, and especially one yet to reach his prime at age 27. But having missed two-thirds of last season through injury, and performing poorly the year before, he represents a risk to the team that takes him on board.
- I think he is probably a better pitcher than Robert Terry at the moment, but Terry will get the starter job ahead of him. I’m worried that, at age 24 now, Terry’s development will stagnate if he doesn’t get chance to play; I want to see what he can do. It is nice to now have Jaramillo as a quality backup option to draw upon.
- Probably, one of Terry or Jaramillo will be traded ahead of the July deadline. Terry gets first chance to show me that that man shouldn’t be him.
- I have made a contract offer to free agent outfielder Ramón Rodríguez and am waiting to hear back from his agent. Rodríguez will join Terry Lawrence as veteran depth on the minor league roster. After that, I do not expect to make any more roster moves this winter. As usual, we have front-loaded our business. I am, of course, always willing to listen to any interesting offers from other teams.

Dark Knights GM Ammaro defends trade of Jenkins to Magpies
Raleigh strengthen pitching options with acquisition of Hoffman and Castillo

By Buster Oldknee, 4:58PM, 11 Dec 51

Raleigh general manager Reuben Ammaro has defended the club’s decision to trade away Young first baseman Jimmy Jenkins and starter/reliever Jorge Hernández to the Des Moines Magpies. The two young players moved in exchange for experienced relief pitcher Steve Hoffman and starting pitcher prospect Eduardo Castillo.

Jenkins, 22, was the Dark Knights’ first round draft pick in 2050 and listed as BNN’s #25 prospect at the start of the 2051 season. Jenkins is an excellent all-round hitter with good power, but was blocked at 1B in Raleigh by Masaharu Endo. Many Dark Knights fans are up in arms about the trade, and feel the team should have traded Endo rather than the outstanding Jenkins, but Ammaro explained that he preferred the proven talents of Endo as the club look to bounce back from a disappointing season.

Ammaro also cited the exciting pitching talent joining Raleigh in the exchange, who were themselves blocked in a Magpies organisation bulging at the seams with quality hurlers. Hoffman, 28, broke into the major leagues last year with Bismarck, putting up a 3.42 ERA over 22 appearances before joining the Magpies by trade in July. The main prize for the Dark Knights is Castillo, still only 21 but an exciting player who was himself the league’s #45 prospect in April. Castillo and Hoffman are both expected to start the season on Raleigh’s 25-man roster.

Sources say the Magpies front office are delighted by the trade, and feel Jenkins, who is probably still a year away from the big leagues yet, will become an important part of their lineup in future. It seems the Magpies were not expecting to make any further trade moves this winter, but Raleigh came calling about Hoffman’s availability and then a larger deal soon fell into place.

Veteran outfielder Rodríguez signs for Magpies

By Maggie Pye | 17 Dec | 302 comments

The Magpies have reached an agreement to sign free agent outfielder Ramón Rodríguez to a 1-year contract for the coming season, the club announced today. The move is designed to add to the club’s depth of options in the outfield positions.

Rodríguez, 29, has played his entire career to date with the Albany Firefoxes, but has not been an everyday starter for much of that time. He has a lifetime .273 batting average and .631 OPS mark. The deal is worth a reported $1.3m.

The Knuckleball Times

Trade retrospective: Magpies acquire Limón, May 2046

A month and half into Billy Podesta’s first season as general manager, the Magpies had got off to an unexpectedly hot start. Their 27-15 record was, however, only good enough for 3rd place in the North Division. Hugely popular veteran first baseman Roberto Marín was struggling, and, in an attempt to make his team both younger and better, DePodesta pulled off a fateful trade with Indianapolis which brought Enrique Limón to Des Moines.

Des Moines got: 1B/LF Enrique Limón, LF Rafael Avila, 1B Brandon Farley
Indianapolis got: 1B Roberto Marín, RF Bryan Lang, 2B Jacques Tanguay, MR Luis Reyes


Limón: Became one of the Magpies’ most popular ever players, and led the offense in their charge to glory in the rest of the 2046 campaign. He was astonishingly consistent, put up an overall 142 OPS+ mark over his four years with the Magpies, and won WL Outstanding Hitter in 2048. Left as a free agent after the 2049 season to join Bismarck.

Marín: The 6-time all-star had a fine end to the 2046 season in Indianapolis. He rejoined Sacramento, with whom he spent the first 12 years of his SCL career, in 2047 for a nostalgic swansong, but by then he was well past his best. He retired at the end of that season and was inducted to the SCL Hall of Fame after posting 515 HR and 1496 RBIs.

Avila: After just 28 games and two months with the Magpies, the young outfielder was traded back to Indianapolis, where he remains today. The Wildcats have used him primarily as a backup hitter and he has a .693 OPS over his career to date.

Tanguay: The Magpies never really gave the Canadian game time, but he established himself as a genuine major leaguer in Indianapolis. The Wildcats traded him to Santa Fe, where he spent four seasons as their starting second baseman. Joined Hartford as a free agent for the 2051 season and picked up a North East Division winners’ medal.

Farley: Didn’t make it out of the minor league team in Des Moines, and was traded to Austin in 2049. Over half a season with the Tycoons, he posted an impressive .885 OPS, and has spent the last two seasons as starting first baseman in Atlanta.

FANGRAPHICS
Pre-season preview: Clayton Glutenfree gives his run-down of the 2052 Magpies

Most of the roster which won 92 games last season returns for the 2052 campaign, but Billy DePodesta did sanction the departure of two key players, former Outstanding Hitter winner Jeffrey White and home-grown starting pitcher Robinson Ortíz. DePodesta has recruited well, bringing in promising Western League Rookie of the Year Tadamichi Hamada to replace White, but this looks like being the year that the Magpies’ small budget finally catches up with them and they miss the playoffs.

Rotation:
SP Tom Hart
(26, throws R, 4.5*)
SP Israel Padilla (23, throws R, 4*)
SP Cory Adams (24, throws R, 2.5*)
SP Wesley Weaver (27, throws R, 1.5*)
SP Robert Terry (24, throws R, 2.5*)

Ortíz’s departure means the Magpies will have an all-right handed rotation for the first time in DePodesta’s tenure. Hart and Padilla, now signed to a long-term contract, provide an excellent top two. Former all-star Weaver had a disappointing 2051 season; with the depth of young pitching talent at the club he is under pressure to regain his best form. Terry finally broke into the team last season but didn’t fully convince; he too will need to perform to hold his place. The team have the likes of a Marv Lewis, Robinson Ramírez, Ronald Williams and SCL #3 prospect Ricardo Vargas pushing to win spots, along with free agent signing António Jaramillo.

Bullpen:
CL Ken James
(26, throws R, 3.5*)
SU Walt Davidson (24, throws R, 4.5*)
SU Jesús Zamora (21, throws L 4.5*)
MR Jesús Benítez (24, throws R, 5*)
MR Ramón González (22, throws R, 5*)
MR Bernardo Merrado (24, throws R, 4.5*)
MR David Gaines (24, throws L, 5*)

The Magpies bullpen is loaded with ability, but too many of them didn’t perform to their talent level last year. Benítez, Merrado and Gaines were the head of that underperforming group, and will have to play well to hold off the challenge for places coming out of the minor league roster from Octávio Vásquez and Allen Clary. Dependable closer James and principal setup man Davidson did deliver last term, and the form of fast-tracked draft pick González was an unexpected surprise.

Catcher:
C Ernesto Solís
(25, bats R, 4*)
C Blair Cunningham (26, bats R, 2.5*)

Solís and Cunningham are both defensively superb and good contact hitters, and mean the Magpies can always rely on having a quality catcher behind the plate. Solís is the starter, but the improving Cunningham will get his share of at-bats, particularly against LHP. José Pereira is the third catcher.

Infield:
1B Gonzalo Torralda
(25, bats L, 4.5*)
2B Ángel Ochoa (28, bats R, 4*)
3B Reynaldo González (25, bats L, 4.5*)
3B/SS Ángel Márquez (27, bats R, 4.5*)
SS Eric Warner (25, bats S, 2*)

With White gone, the Magpies will look to the impressive Torralda to step into his shoes at cleanup. The two Ángels, Ochoa and Márquez, are everyday starters in what is a young but quality infield. González and Warner will platoon for the third infield spot. Nick Baker and Alex Becker give the team admirable infield depth, and there is a phalanx of prospects also waiting in the wings.

Outfield:
LF Tadamichi Hamada
(23, bats R, 3*)
LF Rob Crawford (25, bats R, 3*)
LF Joe Merrill (25, bats R, 2*)
CF Gianni Hagenaars (28, bats R, 1*)
RF Dave Plummer (25, bats R, 3*)
RF Pedro Soto (27, bats L, 4*)

The last time the Magpies traded to acquire a Japanese reigning Rookie of the Year, Iemitsu Ishii, it didn’t work out so well. They will be hoping for better from Hamada, signed to replace White in the lineup and improve the team’s defense at LF, as Crawford switches to designated hitter. Soto is an all-star and fan favourite in RF. Hagenaars split opinion last year, his stellar defense contrasting with frequently lacklustre offense. Having demoted Hagenaars to the minors before changing his mind, DePodesta will hope Hagenaars’s bat recovers and ends the debate, or else Merrill will probably win the CF spot. Plummer is good quality, affordable backup. Terry Lawrence will begin the year on the minor league roster, but could become trade bait.

Overall:
With White gone, the Magpies lineup does look weaker this season. The critical question for the club is whether Torralda-Hamada in 2052 can between them match the production of White-Torralda last year. I feel their young offense will struggle to score enough runs on a consistent basis, and the team’s barren sequences at the plate will be often enough that they miss a postseason berth. Another problem is that it is hard to envisage them winning regularly without the experience and leadership of some veterans; at age 28, Ángel Ochoa and Gianni Hagenaars are the oldest guys on the Magpies roster.

FanGraphics prediction: 85-77, third place in North Division
